    first period off the pill....

    and I am having the hardest time. My flow is really heavy (heavier than even before I was on the pill) and the cramps are so bad I feel like crying. I was on b/c for over 2 years.. is this a normal reaction from not taking the b/c?

    It's normal. Your body is adjusting to the lack of hormones.

    I agree with GLSheridan. This is normal. For two years your body had the pill keeping the lining of the uterus thin, and cramps at bay. You stopped the pill, so your body is kind of going "Whoa! Gotta use my own hormones again! Time to crank em up!"

    Afer a few months you should go back to as you were prior to taking the pill.

    This is kinda scaring me. Were you guys really bloated before the onslaught of the return of that terrible period? Just curious, I am coming up on my 2nd missed cycle after being on the pill for 5yrs and I am so bloated it looks ridiculous, so I wonder.
